Fair use rationale for Image:Fpdbadge.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Fpdbadge.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Description of local government[edit]

This article states that the Board of Selectmen serves as the town's judicial branch, but that is not true. Boards of Selectmen do not stand in judgement. They are the elected executives for the town. Acter (talk) 10:31, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

That particular section was written by a member of the Framingham town meeting, so I would tend to believe him over your opinion. (no offense intended in the statement)--Jeremy ( Blah blah...) 16:01, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Ah. You are assuming that I am not, also, a town meeting member. (-: Acter (talk) 12:38, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

There is absolutely no judicial branch of the Framingham Government. In fact, the Board of Selectmen is explicitly the executive branch. The Strong Town Manager is a government employee, and does not constitute a branch of government. (Rdsalemi (talk) 11:57, 7 December 2010 (UTC))
